Greg and I spent half a year in in 2003/2004, and one of the things I most remember is the time we spent touring a textile museum. During the tour we learnt all about the different printing techniques used in .

What I love about handmade products is the imperfections. Mass-produced items look too uniform, without any interesting details.

Rakesh Hand Printers is a family business that specializes in hand block printed textiles. It is named after Rakesh Anchara, the youngest of three generations of textile printers. Anchara’s family started the business in a small township called Sanganer on the outskirts of Jaipur, the bustling capital of Rajasthan. Sanganer is renowned for its ethnic textile products and it is here that Anchara works with 5 other artisans to create beautiful hand blockprinted bed covers, cushion covers, tablecloths, runners and napkins.
